Extreme Makeover To Rebuild School Destroyed In Flood
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” Heads To Tennessee To Rebuild School Destroyed In Flood. “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” is headed to Tennessee to rebuild a school devastated by the floods in 2010 and some of country’s biggest musicians are joining in to lend a hand. ABC and the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” team will take up shop in Nashville to rebuild the Lighthouse School that was destroyed on May 1st earlier this year after Music City was left under water. The school has been run by the Sweatt family since 2003 and quickly became national news when footage of one of the building floating down the interstate was shown. Even throughout the destruction of their school and damage to their facility, the Sweatt family has led recovery efforts that have helped over 200 families in the area. They have provided shelter, food, water, clothing and counseling, along with financial services to help give hope to a shattered community. With eight of their eighteen buildings destroyed in the floods, the “Extreme Makeover” team leader Ty Pennington, designers Leigh Anne Tuohy, Paul DiMeo and Tracy Hutson will work their magic in a matter of just seven days.
